Personally I would be a little concenred about citing the sources given on that site. They appear to be predominantly of books written by gentlemen worthies, rather than being good, well-researched and rigorously academic which they appear to be - the inference of the citations.

As an academic in a related field I recognise a number of assertions that were accepted wisdom in the mid to late nineteenth century, but which would now be simply dismissed. It is a useful source to signpost more detailed study, no more.
Sorry just saw this.  There are a lot of Coombs & they do have their own site for Coomb, Coombs, Coom, Coome, Coombs, Coombe, etc.  If you look up Coombs & Coombs, think the site should come up.  If you look through it you will see that many people (me included) have put their names on a list with the main data held at that time
